…in both senses of the phrase: striking out at the rational world, where the everyday lives of all of us absolutely disgust them; striking out when trying to defend their hates and prejudices in court.
Judge Walker’s Decision on Prop 8, was a thorough beatdown on the idea that we can, by a simple majority vote, place hate and fear into the Constitution of California. Please read it:
Please, please, please! OK…not many people will read it. That would explain the comments I read against the decision. These are always re-hashings of arguments that the Prop 8 Proponents had every opportunity to bring before and defend in Court. Every one of them failed. Apparently reading scripture and making up statistics doesn’t carry much legal weight.
The main problem for the Freaks in court was showing that the State has an Interest in denying rights to a subset of its citizens. All of their evidence pointed to the State’s interest in promoting stable families living in stable households. Their evidence bit them hard when it also showed that married, same-sex couples are stable families and create stable household. In fact, all of the evidence pointed to a State Interest in allowing same-sex couples the right to marry.
Please read the decision. The next time you read “people will be marrying dogs!” or “the majority voted for it!” or “they can’t have children!” please point the poster to the above link. They all need to read this.
